What will be the fate of The Vampire Diaries Season 8?
“I just hope that whatever I do after, the crew can come with me. The crew is going to be the hardest thing to let go because we’re a family.”And now reports are coming in that Paul Wesley who plays Stefan Salvatore is also leaving the show.
Sources report that Paul Wesley is leaving the show because of Ian Somerhalder.
After Nina Dobrev’s exit, the story focused on the bond of the Salvatore brothers. But with reports of Ian and Paul leaving the show after Season 8, the future of the show looks bleak.
It is widely expected now that the once popular show will soon meet its end.
The Vampire Diaries producer Julie Plec earlier told E!
News that the fate of The Vampire Diaries rests solely on Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley.“I finally realized that my destiny on this show, creatively, is tied in to Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley. As long as those boys who I now consider my friends want to keep telling the story, then I won’t walk away from telling the story,” Plec said.
Reports are also suggesting that Nina Dobrev will return for the show’s finale.
But with Ian Somerhalder still on the show, it is unlikely that Nina will ever return.
Ian Somerhalder recently announced that Season 8 will be his last.
